Billions of dollars are spent each year reconstructing slopes, dredging channels and rebuilding shorelines that have been severely degraded by rainfall, storm water runoff and sediment deposits. The impact of this damage can be devastating to our landscape, water sources and wildlife.

impor tance of controlling erosion

In addition, the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II establishes strict federal soil erosion and sediment control regulations that affect 97.5% of all construction activity. Anyone in the U.S. who disturbs one acre or more of soil is required to file a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) with appropriate local enforcement agencies or face stiff penalties, making the need to control erosion that much more tangible.

TURF REINFORCEMENT MATS – PERMANENT North American Green’s permanent turf reinforcement mats provide long-term erosion protection and vegetation establishment assistance while permanently reinforcing vegetation. All of our turf reinforcement mats are built around a permanent, non-degradable three-dimensional matting structure and consist of either 100% synthetic components or a combination of synthetic and natural materials.

recognized as problem solvers

North American Green’s turf reinforcement mats enable vegetation to be used in areas where the forces exerted by water and/or wind exceed the shear limits of unreinforced vegetation. Typical applications include high flow channels, streambanks, shorelines and other areas where rock riprap, articulated concrete blocks and poured concrete were once the only suitable alternatives for erosion protection.

NORTH AMERICAN GREEN PRODUCT ADVANTAGES North American Green rolled erosion control products offer the following significant advantages over bare-ground seeding, loose mulching, hydraulic mulching, or using rock riprap or concrete for protecting slopes, drainage channels, streambanks, and shorelines: • Mechanically bonded by stitching on 1.5-inch (3.81-cm) centers to retain mulch on the steepest of slopes and high-flow channels • Prevent loss of precious topsoil to wind and water erosion • Provide excellent conditions for quick, healthy vegetation growth • Provide long-term protection for dormant seeding during winter months • Stabilize slopes from erosion to protect roadways and keep them safe and clean • Protect water quality in lakes, rivers and streams • Permanently reinforce the root and stem structures of vegetation • Easily conform to landscape features • Lightweight for easy handling and transportation

biodegradable erosion protection B I O N E T ® 1 0 0 % B I O D E G R A DA B L E E RO S I O N C O N T RO L B L A N K E T S

BioNet® 100% biodegradable erosion control blankets from North American Green provide effective and all-natural erosion control and mulching. Unlike erosion control blankets with photodegradable plastic netting and yarn that depend on sunlight to degrade, all products in the BioNet series are composed of 100% organic materials that biodegrade completely. BioNet products are ideal for use in applications where synthetic materials may pose a threat to animals or the environment, such as wetland mitigation and bioengineering projects.

BioNet® 100% biodegradable erosion control blankets

BioNet products feature a dense mulch layer stitched with biodegradable thread to either one or two jute nets. Providing better moisture absorption, flexibility and conformance with the soil surface, BioNet products demonstrate improved erosion control and mulching capabilities versus synthetic-netted erosion control blankets. The top net on all BioNet products is leno woven which ensures superior mechanical stability and fiber retention under severe conditions and makes BioNet products more stable than other biodegradable blankets that use cross-lay netting only. Though designed to retain the mulch matrix under severe flow conditions, the interwoven strands of the BioNet netting can move independently of each other, minimizing the risk of accidental wildlife entrapment and enabling the use of live stakes and installation of trees, shrubs and other plantings – without compromising erosion control performance.

permanent protection P E R M A N E N T T U R F R E I N F O R C E M E N T M AT S

North American Green’s permanent turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) allow vegetation to be used in areas where flow conditions exceed the limits of natural vegetation, including severe applications where rock riprap and concrete were once the only suitable alternatives. The permanent matting structure of our TRMs reinforces the root and stem systems of vegetation against damage and extraction under high shear stress water flow, while the matrix filler material provides immediate to long-term erosion control and mulching for enhanced vegetation establishment. Our TRMs are installed over the prepared seedbed and require no soil filling. This distinction is important because the exposed topsoil of manually soil-filled TRMs must, of course, be protected – typically requiring the costly addition of a temporary erosion control blanket over the TRM and soil layer. permanent turf reinforcement mats

Like our erosion control blankets, North American Green’s TRMs are installed in a one-step operation directly over the prepared seedbed which saves time and money and ensures the highest level of erosion control and vegetation reinforcement.

permanent protection V M A X 3® C O M P O S I T E R E I N F O R C E M E N T S E R I E S

North American Green’s Vmax3® Composite Reinforcement Series consists of three different permanent turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) each designed to maximize performance through all three developmental phases of a reinforced vegetative lining (unvegetated – vegetation establishment – vegetation maturity).

The matting structure is incorporated with either natural organic or UV stabilized fibers to further supplement the TRM structure’s ground cover and moisture retention properties for dramatically improved erosion control and mulching action. In addition, all Vmax3 products are stitched on 1.5-inch (3.81-cm) centers with permanent thread, which adds significantly to their field performance capabilities.

Phase I

Vmax 3 ® composite reinforcement series

Each Vmax3 product begins with a permanent, three-dimensional corrugated turf reinforcement matting structure that anchors and reinforces the roots and stems of vegetation for long-term stability, and helps create a shear plane that actually deflects the flowing water away from the soil surface – improving its immediate to long-term erosion control capabilities.

_ 11

Phase II

Phase III

Vmax3 products have been extensively tested under field and laboratory conditions, and the top-of-the-line Vmax3 P550 is proven to drive the shear resistance of vegetation to over 14 lbs/ft2 – establishing a new maximum for vegetation reinforcement! The Vmax3 Composite Reinforcement Series effectively incorporates the best features of our temporary and permanent products to provide maximum erosion protection, vegetation establishment assistance, and permanent vegetation reinforcement in a wide variety of applications – including severe slopes, high to extreme-flow channels, spillways, streambanks, and shorelines – where drainage pipe, rock riprap and concrete linings were once the only viable alternatives.

product research & testing Independently Proven Performance + Consistent, Uncompromising Quality = Guaranteed Results

Construction and disturbed sites are continually faced with more stringent state and federal erosion and sediment control regulations, and North American Green strives to assist engineers, designers and contractors in meeting and adhering to these regulations through extensive product research and testing. We do this with the sole purpose of providing our customers with the confidence, knowledge and assurance in the design, selection, and use of all North American Green products to meet the demanding regulations affecting their projects. We are so confident in our research, quality, and each product’s total performance that we developed the industry’s first design software for rolled erosion control products, the Erosion Control Materials Design Software (ECMDS®), and backed it with the industry’s only written guarantee, the Ultimate Assurance Guarantee. (See Ultimate Assurance Guarantee section on page 23 for more details.) extended-termproven independently degradable performance erosion control blankets

INDEPENDENTLY PROVEN PERFORMANCE From our inception, North American Green has conducted product research and testing according to the latest industry standards – and has developed testing protocol where there was none – to provide confidence in the design and field performance levels of every North American Green rolled erosion control product. Research facilities have included Utah State University, the Texas Transportation Institute, University of Hawaii, Drexel University, University of Guelph, and Colorado State University (CSU). University laboratory research and field testing have been conducted on all of North American Green’s degradable erosion control blankets to quantify their performance for unvegetated slope erosion control and channel scour protection under a variety of environmental extremes and conditions. Additionally, all North American Green turf reinforcement mats have been tested for their immediate erosion control (unvegetated), long-term erosion control (vegetated), and vegetation reinforcement properties. By compiling the data from all this research, North American Green has developed erosion control performance factors for each of our RECPs for inclusion in ECMDS. The research doesn’t stop once initial performance levels are established. North American Green continues to rigorously test our products, with research recently completed at CSU on the Vmax3® Composite Reinforcement Series of turf reinforcement mats. One conclusion can be drawn from the extensive research conducted over the years: "North American Green RECPs significantly reduce soil erosion and enhance vegetation establishment and long-term survivability.”

temporary sediment control B I O D E G R A D A B L E S E D I M E N T F I LT R AT I O N S Y S T E M

Unprotected topsoil, particularly on sloping areas or active construction sites, is vulnerable to significant erosion and sediment problems. In fact, millions of dollars are spent each year restoring slopes, rebuilding drainage channels, and dredging and cleaning ponds and streams. Additionally, lack of compliance with local and federal environmental regulations – such as NPDES Phase II – can result in costly construction delays and substantial fines. North American Green’s SedimentSTOP® is an effective Best Management Practice to prevent much of this costly damage.

biodegradable sediment filtration system

SEDIMENTSTOP® BIODEGRADABLE

STANDARD ROLL SPECIFICATIONS

SEDIMENT FILTRATION SYSTEM

Width: 6.67 ft (2.03 m)

SedimentSTOP® consists of straw and coconut fiber reinforced with a 100% biodegradable netting that is rolled from edge to edge to create a temporary, water-permeable sediment filtration structure. SedimentSTOP reduces soil loss caused by storm water runoff, traps soil particles while allowing water to pass through, and protects waterways, sidewalks and roads from sediment accumulation. Because it is field fabricated, SedimentSTOP allows for greater flexibility in meeting specific site requirements, and the diameter of the finished roll can be increased, if necessary, with grass clippings, pine needles, straw, or leaves. The 50-foot finished length minimizes seam construction, while the lightweight rolls can be easily transported over difficult terrain or to remote areas.

_ 16

The totally biodegradable SedimentSTOP is ideal for use in forest fire rehabilitation, pipeline re-vegetation, bioengineering projects, commercial/new home and resort construction, industrial sites and highway projects.

SedimentSTOP has many performance advantages, especially over conventional methods such as hay bales, straw wattles and silt fence. • 100% biodegradable, so there is no costly and timeconsuming removal like with most alternatives. • The structurally-sound, net-reinforced layers prevent failures if the outer netting wrap is damaged after installation. • Extremely flexible and readily conforms to the ground surface, so undercutting is minimized. • The combination of straw and coconut fibers improves filtration capabilities, maximizing sediment retention. • Proven to be up to 98.5% effective at reducing sediment migration. • The attached Splash Apron™ improves sediment filtration while reducing potential downhill erosion.

erosion control materials design software E C M D S ® S O F T WA R E

North American Green’s easy-to-use Erosion Control Materials Design Software (ECMDS®) helps ensure proper design, soil loss prediction, product specification and project planning and is a necessity for every engineer, designer or contractor who must comply with today’s strict erosion and sediment control regulations. ECMDS provides computer-assisted design and selection of materials for slope erosion protection and channel scour resistance based on data from laboratory and field research involving North American Green’s erosion control blankets and turf reinforcement mats, vegetation, TRM-reinforced vegetation, and riprap.

ECMDS ® software

Our slope protection module is the first performance-based selection system developed specifically for rolled erosion control products. This module provides an analysis of site parameters such as slope gradient and length, soil type and erodibility, and local rainfall energy and intensity. The program is based on soil-loss calculations obtained from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Handbook #703 “Predicting Soil Erosion by Water: A Guide to Conservation Planning with the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE)” for material evaluation and sediment control analysis.

_ 22

The channel protection module is based on calculations from the Federal Highway Administration’s Hydraulic Engineering Circular #15 (HEC 15) “Tractive Force Procedure” and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Handbook (AG HBK 667) “Stability Design of Grass-Lined Open Channels.” This module provides an analysis of the effects of water flow hydraulics on materials such as North American Green’s erosion control blankets and turf reinforcement mats, vegetation and rock riprap. One of the unique features is that ECMDS contains a vegetation module to assist in the selection of vegetation types and seeding rates to coordinate with RECPs for various erosion control applications across North America.

ECMDS® 4.3 PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS • Includes slope, channel and vegetation modules • Includes installation CAD drawings • Incorporates updated design values for all Vmax3® products • Specify English or Spanish language • Use either English or metric/SI units

Guaranteed Complete Degradability

BioNet®100% biodegradable erosion control blankets from North American Green provide effective and all-natural erosion control and vegetation establishment in an environmentally and wildlife friendly manner. All products in the BioNet series – S75BN™ Single Net Straw Blanket, S150BN™ Double Net Straw Blanket, SC150BN™ Double Net StrawCoconut Blanket and C125BN™ Double Net Coconut Blanket – are composed of 100% organic, biodegradable materials. North American Green BioNet products offer the following features and benefits to guarantee the “natural” success of your project.

Woven Net Structure • Little to no risk of wildlife entrapment • Easy to sprig or plant through

Leno-Weave Top Net • High durability, fiber retention & mechanical stability

Flexible Jute Netting • Increased water absorption • Improved blanket conformance & adherence to soil • Enhanced erosion protection and mulching capabilities

Stitched on 1.5-inch Centers • Biodegradable thread • Excellent durability & flexibility

Patented DOT System® • Standard on most products • Simplifies proper installation

Performance Guaranteed • Backed by North American Green’s Ultimate Assurance Guarantee

Ideal Applications Include • Bioengineering applications • Environmentally sensitive sites • Shaded areas • Streambanks/shorelines

Unlike erosion control blankets with photodegradable plastic netting and yarn that depends on sunlight to degrade, BioNet blankets are completely biodegradable. Leaving absolutely no synthetic residues on site after vegetation is established, BioNet blankets are ideal for use in bioengineering projects, wetland mitigation, riparian area protection, shaded areas, streambank restorations and environmentally-sensitive areas where synthetic products may pose a threat to wildlife.

Fig. 1 - Stable Yet Flexible Leno Weave

Fig. 2 - Easily Distorted Cross-Lay Weave

Increased Erosion Control & Mulching Capabilities With a dense mulch layer, BioNet blankets offer much greater erosion control and mulching capabilities than jute or coir netting alone. BioNet blankets also exhibit increased erosion control and mulching capabilities versus their synthetic-netted counterparts. The jute netting on these products increases their water absorption capacity, which helps weigh the blanket down and conform the fiber matrix to the soil surface (upon saturation). This conformance and adherence to the soil surface aids in effective erosion control, soil temperature regulation and moisture retention to promote seed germination and early plant growth.

Increased Strength & Structural Integrity The jute top netting on all BioNet products is constructed using the leno weave method (Fig. 1) to ensure superior mechanical stability and fiber retention under severe conditions. By intertwining and securing the cross directional netting strands, leno weaving affords BioNet blankets higher tensile strength, greater durability and better erosion protection than many other “biodegradable” blankets which use easily distorted cross-lay netting (Fig. 2) only.

Less Risk To Wildlife & Easy To Plant Through The interwoven strands of the BioNet netting can move independently of each other. This flexibility minimizes the risk of accidental wildlife entrapment; and enables the use of live stakes and the installation of trees, shrubs and other plantings through the blanket without compromising erosion control performance.

Double Net Straw Blanket

S75BN™ features a 100% agricultural straw matrix stitched with biodegradable thread to a leno woven jute top netting. Designed to provide erosion protection and vegetation establishment assistance for up to 12 months. S75BN is much more effective than loose straw, hydro-mulch or conventional jute netting. The S75BN is generally recommended for use on moderate slope and low-flow channel lining applications.

S150BN™ features a 100% agricultural straw matrix stitched with biodegradable thread between a leno woven jute top netting and a woven jute bottom netting. The double net structure of the S150BN blanket makes it more durable and effective at controlling erosion and assisting with vegetation establishment in more demanding applications, such as moderate-flow channels, streambanks and steep slopes, for up to 12 months.

Proven stabilization applications include paved and unpaved roads, temporary construction roads, truck freight yards, parking lots, log and ore storage areas, and aircraft taxiways. Thrace-LINQ offers a variety of ground stabilization geotextile products and roll sizes which allow you to select the most cost-effective geotextile for your particular application and site conditions. Both woven and nonwoven geotextiles are available as described in the chart below.

Thrace-LINQ’s woven and nonwoven geotextiles are manufactured with the highest grade polypropylene, and are designed to last when properly installed. Polypropylene is unaffected from exposure to a wide range of organic and

Stabilization/separation — prolongs surface life of roads The surface performance of a road, parking lot, airport taxiway or other traffic-bearing surfaces depends on the strength and stability of the foundation. To prolong surface life and stabilize the foundation, geotextiles provide a rugged separation/stabilization layer between aggregate and subgrade. Case studies have shown improved resistance to deformation under repeated load. This means increased service life for asphalt or concrete surfaces and resistance to rutting on unpaved roads. In any application, roadway performance is improved. In addition to maintenance savings, geotextiles save cost by reducing aggregate depth and preserving the aggregate.

Road Aggregate Geotextile Subgrade Road Aggregate With a geotextile, aggregate retains Geotextile load bearing capacity and Subgrade does not migrate into the subgrade.


Silt fence for containment To satisfy environmental erosion considerations during construction, geotextiles and pre-assembled fences control silt from water run-off at the site. Most states require that sediment control plans, including silt fence, be submitted before construction on a site can begin. Thrace-LINQ distributors can offer our silt fence products fabricated in a variety of ways to meet your state’s specifications.

Asphalt Overlay Nonwoven geotextiles absorb asphalt tack coat to form a moisture barrier. It also retards reflective cracking by absorbing shearing stress.

Geotextile strength for specialized soil reinforcement To meet the demanding range of site requirements for reinforcement projects, medium- or high-strength geotextiles of polypropylene composition are designed to provide versatility, variety and durable performance.

Geotextile Medium- or high-strength geotextiles are available for reinforced work platforms and similar applications. Tensile strength

and tensile modulus vary to meet specific requirements. High-tenacity woven geotextiles are available for long-term reinforcement in critical performance structures.

Existing Pavement

Stone Base Subgrade

High tensile strength and modulus contribute to soil structure reinforcement. Additionally, low strain under load minimizes potential for creep deformation.

APPLICATIONS Mirafi® N-Series nonwoven geotextiles are used in a wide variety of applications including soil separation and drainage applications. Lightweight nonwovens are predominantly used for subsurface drainage applications along highways, within embankments, under airfields, and athletic fields. For these drainage structures to be effective, they must have a properly designed protective filter.

Mirafi® N-Series Nonwoven Geotextiles

create an effective, long-term drainage solution. INSTALLATION GUIDELINES* French and Trench Drains Geosynthetic Placement

Mirafi® N-Series nonwoven geotextiles eliminate the problems of determining the aggregate gradation required to match soil conditions, finding a convenient and economical source of a specific aggregate gradation, transporting and placing graded aggregate, and assuring that the in-place aggregate gradation provides effective filter performance. Heavyweight nonwovens are used in critical subsurface drainage systems, soil separation, permanent erosion control, and geomembrane liner protection within landfills. These geotextiles provide the required strength and abrasion resistance to withstand installation and application stresses to

Cut geosynthetic to proper width prior to placement. Width should be enough to conform to the trench perimeter with at least a 15cm (6in) top overlap. Place the geosynthetic roll over the trench, and unroll enough geosynthetic that the geosynthetic can be placed down into the trench. Anchor the edges of the geosynthetic with heavy objects to prevent the geosynthetic from falling into the trench. Where overlaps are necessary between rolls, allow for 1m (3ft) overlap from the upstream to the downstream roll. * These guidelines serve as a general basis for installation. Detailed instructions are available from your TenCateTM representative.

both longitudinally and transversely. The geotextile need not be placed in tension before covering with riprap or other materials. Use care in placing the geotextile to avoid possible damage. The geotextile can be joined by overlapping or sewing. Anchor the geotextile firmly at the top of the slope using an anchor trench. For maximum effectiveness, the trench should be at least 1m (3ft) from the crest of the slope and at least 0.6m (2ft) deep. Thoroughly compact soil in the trench to ensure good anchorage. When placing the geotextile along a stream or other places where water movements are expected, anchor the toe of the geotextile in a similar fashion as at the top to prevent scour beneath it. * These guidelines serve as a general basis for installation.

Mirafi® HP-Series Woven Polypropylene Geotextiles for Stabilization and Soil Reinforcement Applications TenCateTM develops and produces materials that deliver increased performance, reduce costs and measurable results when working with our customers to provide advanced solutions utilizing Mirafi® HP geotextiles that make a difference. The Difference Mirafi® HP-Series HighPerformance Geotextiles Make: • Reinforcement Strength. Higher tensile modulus properties per ASTM D 4595 than any comparable stabilization product. • Separation and Filtration. Unique geotextile weave provides excellent separation factors with controlled filtration and drainage. Uniform openings provide same filtration and flow characteristics as that of a fine to coarse sand layer. • Durability. Superior damage resistance for moderate to severe stress installations. • Soil Interaction. Superior soil confinement resulting in greater load distribution. • Roll Sizes. Mirafi® HP geotextiles come in multiple roll sizes to fit your project requirements. • Seams. Panels can be sewn together in the factory or field, providing cross-roll direction strength to facilitate installation.

APPLICATIONS When high performance, flexibility and versatility are necessary, Mirafi® HP geotextiles make the difference for varying application needs including: base course reinforcement and subgrade restraint for road and railway construction; embankment stabilization on soft foundations; reinforcement for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) structures; liner support, voids bridging, reinforcement over soft hazardous pond closures and other environmental market applications. INSTALLATION GUIDELINES* Geotextile Placement Direct placement of the geotextile on the prepared site is usually preferable. Generally, it is advisable to leave vegetative cover such as grass and weeds in place to provide a support matting for construction activities. The geotextile should be rolled out flat and tight with no wrinkles or folds. The rolls should be oriented as shown on plans to insure the principal strength direction of the material is placed in the correct orientation. Adjacent rolls should be overlapped or seamed as a function of subgrade strength (CBR).

Fill Placement Fill should be placed directly over the Mirafi® HP geotextile in 20cm (8in) to 30cm (12in) loose lifts. For very weak subgrades, 45cm (18in) lifts or thicker lifts may be required to stabilize the subgrade, as directed by the engineer. Most rubber-tired vehicles can be driven at slow speeds, less than 16km/h (10mph) and in straight paths over the exposed geotextile without causing damage to the geotextile. Sudden braking and sharp turning should be avoided. Tracked construction equipment should not be operated directly upon the geotextile. A minimum fill soil thickness of 15cm (6in) is required prior to operation of tracked vehicles over the geotextile. Turning of tracked vehicles should be kept to a minimum to prevent tracks from displacing the fill and damaging the geotextile. * These guidelines serve as a general basis for installation. Detailed instructions are available from your TenCateTM representative.

Prior to fill placement, the Mirafi® HP geotextile should be held in place using suitable means such as pins, piles of soil, etc. so that it does not move around during fill placement. Mirafi® HP-Series High-Performance Geotextile

APPLICATIONS When superior performance, flexibility and versatility are necessary, Mirafi® RSi Series geosynthetics make the difference for varying application needs including: base course reinforcement and subgrade stabilization for road, runway and railway construction; embankment stabilization on soft foundations; reinforcement for mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) structures; liner support, voids bridging, reinforcement over soft hazardous pond closures and other environmental market applications. INSTALLATION GUIDELINES** Geosynthetic Placement Direct placement of the geosynthetic on the prepared site is usually preferable. Generally, it is advisable to leave vegetative cover such as grass and weeds in place to provide a support matting for construction activities. The geosynthetic should be deployed flat and tight with no wrinkles or folds. The rolls should be oriented as shown on plans to insure the principal strength direction of the material is placed in the correct orientation. Adjacent rolls should be overlapped or seamed as a function of subgrade strength (CBR). Prior to fill place ment, the Mirafi® RSi Series geosynthetics should be held in place using suitable means

Mirafi® RSi-Series Woven Geosynthetic

such as pins, piles of soil, etc. to limit movement during fill placement. Fill Placement Fill should be placed directly over Mirafi® RSi geosynthetic in 20cm (8in) to 30cm (12in) loose lifts. For very weak subgrades, 45cm (18in) lifts or thicker lifts may be required to stabilize the subgrade, as directed by the engineer. Most rubber-tired vehicles can be driven at slow speeds, less than 16km/h (10mph) and in straight paths over the exposed geosynthetic without causing damage. Sudden braking and sharp turning should be avoided. Tracked construction equipment should not be operated directly upon the geosynthetic. A minimum fill soil thickness of 15cm (6in) is required prior to operation of tracked vehicles over the geosynthetic. Turning of tracked vehicles should be kept to a minimum to prevent tracks from displacing the fill and damaging the geotextile. ** These guidelines serve as a general basis for installation. Detailed instructions are available from your TenCateTM representative.

APPLICATIONS Because of their flexibility and versatility, Mirafi® PET geotextiles are used in a variety of soil reinforcement applications, including embankments on soft foundations, retaining walls, and steepened slopes. Environmental applications include liner support, voids bridging, and reinforcement over soft, hazardous pond closures. For any application where long term design of earth reinforcement structures are involved, Mirafi® PET Woven Polyester Geotextiles are logical choices. INSTALLATION GUIDELINES* Site Preparation Direct placement of the geotextile on the prepared site is usually preferable. Generally, it is advisable to leave vegetative cover such as grass and weeds in place to provide a support matting for construction activities. Before unrolling the geosynthetic, verify the roll identification, length, and installation location with the contract drawings. While unrolling the geosynthetic, inspect it for damage or defects. Damage that occurs during storage, handling, or installation shall be repaired as directed by the Engineer.

Mirafi® PET Woven Polyester Geotextile

Orientation of the geosynthetic is of extreme importance since geosynthetics vary in strength with direction. The geosynthetic panel length should be measured in the field then the geosynthetic should be rolled out and cut to the measured length using a razor blade, scissors, sharp knife, or equivalent. Installation of the geotextile must conform to the lines and grades as drawn by the engineer. This may require large roll or panel placement, using manual positioning or equipment-assisted deployment. * These guidelines serve as a general basis for installation.

KNITTED

STRATAGRID PRECISION KNITTED GEOGRID

STRATAGRID is a precision knitted geogrid used in an array of applications. The Strata process insures superior quality, consistency and dimensional stability. STRATAGRID offers superior junction integrity and higher coefficient of soil interaction compared to any other polyester grid. STRATAGRID is the standard by which all other products are measured.

Process Superiority STRATAGRID is a geogrid reinforcement for soil that is manufactured with high molecular weight and high tenacity polyester yarn. The yarns are precision knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures providing tensile reinforcement capacity in both principle directions. A proprietary UV stabilized saturation coating provides further chemical and mechanical benefits. STRATAGRIDs coating process exposes the polyester fiber to much lower temperatures than other coated geogrids, thereby minimizing fiber degradation. The result is superior stress/strain performance in the final STRATAGRID product.

Not all Geosynthetics are Created Equal The dilemma facing most designers is that all geosynthetic reinforcements are NOT created equal. The long term properties of a reinforcement material are polymer and product dependent. It is important for the designer to specify a minimum certifiable requirement for the polymer itself and ensure that the material has been properly tested according to Industry standards. STRATAGRID requires that the polyester (PET) fibers possess a Molecular Weight greater than 25,000 g/m per GRI: GG8 and a Carboxyl End Group number less than 30 per GRI: GG7. Along with ultimate tensile strength testing, Strata Systems conducts extensive testing on long term creep, chemical and biological durability, and installation damage.

Geogrid Function and Specifications Polymer geogrids have been proven to be a safe and cost effective soil reinforcement. The primary function of the tensile reinforcement in a mechanically stabilized earth structure is to resist the internal lateral earth pressures so that the soil reinforced behaves as a stable coherent gravity mass. Most projects require an extended design life of 75 to 100 years. Extensive long term product testing is performed to ensure the polymer reinforcement maintains its key performance parameters over an extended period of time. STRATAGRID has been extensively tested over the past ten years and meets all applicable engineering standards.

Complete Strata Systems testing and reports are available upon request. Also available is Strata’s Tech Note GS305 “Design Strength Calculations” which details how design strengths for STRATAGRID are determined and summarizes years of testing, research and development.

Unsurpassed Structural Integrity and Versatility The engineer’s ability to increase usable land has become an important economic factor in all segments of property development. Increasingly faced with the challenge of maximizing land use, residential, commercial, and industrial developers as well as transportation and infrastructure facilities designers encounter difficult topographic characteristics and soil conditions. StrataSlopes can substantially increase the usable land for change-of-grade applications. In addition, the additional cost associated with a StrataSlope is significantly less than the costs associated with the comparable alternates. StrataSlopes can lead to many interesting benefits such as creating usable space at the top or toe of the slope and eliminating the expense of costly facing elements.

Applications • Reinforced Steep Slopes • Surficial Stability of Embankments

StrataSlopes provide the most cost effective “change-ingrade” construction technique available. Stratagrid is layered within the compacted soil structure to create a reinforced soil composite that has high internal stability.

• Embankments Constructed Over Weak Soils • Levees • Temporary Walls

StrataSlopes can therefore be constructed more steeply than the soils natural angle of repose. StrataSlopes increase the usable land and offer the site Engineer the flexibility to create stable structures that fit the natural contours of the land.

• Pressure Relief Walls • Bridge Abutment

STRATASLOPES STEEP SLOPE REINFORCEMENT

StrataSlopes are unmatched in their ability to conform to the natural contours of even the most difficult sites. This allows the engineer advanced options in dealing with difficult site conditions.

Create a look to match the architect’s vision StrataSlopes’ versatility allows for various facing options to meet specific site soil and aesthetic requirements. Whether slope faces are vegetated to blend in with the surrounding environment or treated with a myriad of veneers StrataSlopes are the perfect design solution.

CASE STUDY PACES PROPERTIES

Show cased here is an Atlanta based hotel property featuring a combination STRATAGRID reinforced steep slope and segmental retaining wall structure. Though the location of the site was highly desirable the existing topography was complicated and posed a challenge to the site engineer. A deep ravine and limited right of way due to grade separation required a grade change of 58 feet in order to make the site accessible. After analyzing several options the engineer chose a STRATAGRID reinforced wall/slope combination. A 20 foot 2 to 1 reinforced steep slope with a 38-foot vertical reinforced segmental retaining wall met the land use requirements and also allowed for optimum flexibility while minimizing site development costs. Slope stability analysis showed the critical failure surface passing behind and under the wall reinforced zone, therefore the 2 to 1 slope required STRATAGRID reinforcement. Geogrid lengths of up to 50 feet were required to satisfy a factor of safety of 1.5 for global stability. The 2 to 1 slope was vegetated to blend into the natural surroundings. The STRATAGRID reinforced slope provided a stable platform for the 38 ft segmental retaining wall. The wall/slope configuration optimized cut and fill requirements and minimized the need for importing offsite soil. The STRATAGRID reinforced wall/slope combination not only allowed optimum flexibility for difficult site conditions, but also minimized site development costs while creating an aesthetically pleasing solution.

Considerations were made to address the sites specific requirements which included heavy cyclical load, saturated foundation soils and steep sided slopes. The site would further be complicated by the adjacent waterways’ influence and it’s particular environmental issues.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

It was determined after an extensive geotechnical investigation that the embankment would not be stable without significant geosynthetic reinforcement. The inclusion of multiple layers of STRATAGRID would vastly improve the overall structural performance of the mass, adding tensile resistance to the inherent shear strength of the soil. STRATAGRID was specifically recommended because of it’s high degree of interaction with soil particles allowing even distribution of heavy loads.

The advanced technology of geogrid structured soil reinforcement created a unique opportunity to replace a 63 year old steel girder railway bridge with a geosynthetic reinforced soil embankment.

SedimentSTOP速

Manufactured by NORTH AMERICAN GREEN


t h e Ve r s a t i l e

North American Green’s SedimentSTOP® Biodegradable Filtration System is a temporary sediment filtration device that provides highly effective sediment control for a wide range of applications.

SEDIMENT CONTROL SOLUTION

SedimentSTOP saves soil, time, and money in applications that include: Forest Fire Rehabilitation Bioengineering Projects Active Jobsites – Commercial/New Home Construction Ski Slopes Highway Construction Industrial Sites Pipeline Revegetation Steep Slopes Wet Areas

SedimentSTOP consists of a 70% straw / 30% coconut fiber matrix reinforced with a 100% biodegradable netting that is rolled from edge to edge to create a seamless temporary, waterpermeable three-dimensional sediment filtration structure.

Edging/Perimeter Control

A Best Management Practice that reduces soil loss caused by stormwater runoff, SedimentSTOP traps soil particles while allowing water to pass through, protecting waterways, sidewalks and roads from sediment accumulation. SedimentSTOP assists engineers, specifiers and contractors in complying with many NPDES Phase II rules and other environmental regulations.

V E R S AT I L E


the SedimentSTOP ÂŽ

A DVA N TAG E

SedimentSTOP dramatically reduces surface sheet erosion, and offers significantly greater filtration capabilities and sediment retention than wattles, straw bales or silt fences. And unlike wattles, which use a single netting on the outside to encapsulate the fiber fill, SedimentSTOP utilizes multiple layers of netting to eliminate the possibility of failure if the outer netting is ever damaged. SedimentSTOP

Wattle

SedimentSTOP was put to the test against straw wattles in research recently conducted at Utah State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Water Research Facility.

SedimentSTOP is more porous than a wattle, allowing it to perform as a buffer strip that slows water and filters sediment. In the event that water does flow over the top, SedimentSTOP has an attached Splash Apron, which reduces rill formation and potential down slope erosion.

Wattles create a dam-like structure that causes water to back up and flow over the top, resulting in potentially severe erosion on the down slope side of the wattle.

Three 20-ft. long plots of sandy loam soil were set at a 2:1 gradient. SedimentSTOP rolls with a 9-inch diameter were placed at the mid-point and 2 ft. from the bottom of one plot, straw wattles of the same diameter were similarly placed on a second plot, and one plot was left unprotected as the control. Sediment runoff was then collected and measured as each plot was exposed to 4 inches of rainfall over a one-hour period. The sediment control effectiveness of SedimentSTOP versus the wattles was significant. While 31.56 lbs. of sediment was collected from the plot with straw wattles, only 4.16 lbs. of sediment was collected from the plot protected by SedimentSTOP. Compared to the bare soil control plot, the straw wattles were only 85% effective, while the SedimentSTOP was independently proven to be 98% effective at reducing sediment runoff!

EFFECTIVE


Biofriendly

SEDIMENT CONTROL

SedimentSTOP is an environmentally friendly, 100% biodegradable product. It can be incorporated with a variety of planting techniques such as: live planting, live staking and seed incorporation. The leno woven net enables its jute strands to move independently of each other, allowing the net openings to expand as necessary. This flexibility, combined with the 100% biodegradability, minimizes the risk of accidental wildlife entrapment. Because it leaves absolutely no synthetic residues on site, SedimentSTOP is ideal for use in bioengineering projects, wetland mitigation, riparian area protection, shaded areas, stream bank restorations and environmentally-sensitive areas where synthetic-netted products may pose a threat to wildlife. By eliminating the need to return to the jobsite to remove the sediment control structure, SedimentSTOP saves you time, money and potential headaches.

N AT U R A L


®

SedimentSTOP is

SedimentSTOP is easy to install, and features a two to three year functional lifespan. The structurally sound netreinforced layers prevent failures – even if the outer netting wrap is damaged during or after installation.

SedimentSTOP is easily field fabricated for greater flexibility to specific site requirements. It is extremely flexible and readily conforms to the ground surface, minimizing undercutting. Longer, 50-foot finished roll length reduces the number of overlaps, and its leno woven natural jute net allows easier contouring to the soil. The short, lightweight packaged rolls are easily transported over difficult terrain and to remote areas.

Finished roll diameter can also be increased, if necessary, by simply adding other organic materials such as grass

EASY TO INSTALL

HERE'S HOW IT IS DONE: Step 1 Dig a 3” deep x 9” wide anchor trench along the contour of the slope or across the swale. Step 2 Position the SedimentSTOP® packaged roll perpendicular to the trench so the double-netted portion covers the anchor trench and extends downslope one foot beyond the anchor trench. (This forms the Splash Apron™.) Unroll to cover the trench. Step 3 Secure SedimentSTOP material into the anchor trench with a row of staples, and then secure the downslope edge of the Splash Apron with another row of staples 12” apart. Step 4 Roll the remaining SedimentSTOP material from the upslope edge into the anchor trench. (If a thicker roll is needed, simply add organic materials across the product width prior to rolling.) Step 5 Once the product has been rolled up, secure it to the soil surface using wooden stakes 3’ on center. NOTE: The complete Installation Instructions are printed on each package of SedimentSTOP®.

This illustration provides general guidelines to assist in the design, installation and spacing of SedimentSTOP. These guidelines may require modification due to variation in soil type, rainfall intensity or duration, and amount of runoff affecting the application site. As slope gradient increases the spacing between the SedimentSTOP structures should decrease. For example, on a slope with a gradient of 6:1 – 4:1 (H:V), the SedimentSTOP structures should be installed 25 feet apart. However, on a slope with a gradient of 2:1 – 1:1 the spacing should be reduced to 10 feet.

Straw Wattles 9-inch & 12-inch Diameters

EROSION CONTROL Products • Guaranteed SOLUTIONS

WS925/WS1210 STRAW WATTLES North American Green straw wattles are an effective and economical alternative to silt fence and straw bales for sediment control and storm water runoff. Cylinders of recycled, compressed, 100% agricultural straw, straw wattles are wrapped in tubular, UV-stabilized black synthetic netting. Straw wattles can be placed and staked along the contour of newly constructed or disturbed slopes. Their use to capture and retain sediment is an EPA-recognized best management practice (BMP). Fertile topsoil, organic matter, and native seeds are trapped behind straw wattles and provide a stable medium for germination. Straw Wattles also retain moisture from rainfall, aiding the growth of tree seedlings planted to their up-slope side. North American Green straw wattles WS925 (9” x 25”) and WS1210 (12” x 10”) are installed by staking in place utilizing North American Green’s 24-inch Eco-Stakes™ and can be used individually or tied together to achieve any desired length.

Advantages of North American Green Straw Wattles •

Increased weight per linear foot for less resistance to movement from wind, water, and sediment load

Low-cost solution to sheet and rill erosion problems

Replaces silt fence or straw bales on steep slopes

Lasts up to two years

Stores moisture for vegetation planted immediately up-slope

The straw incorporates into the soil over time, adding organic material to the soil and retaining moisture for vegetation

Can be staked with fascines to stabilize low-velocity stream banks and establish wetland plants

Gabions & Reno Mattresses Environmental Solutions

CONFORM TO ASTM A975!

Gabions & Reno Mattresses are rectangular baskets made of heavily galvanized, double twisted, steel woven wire mesh. The single unit constructed baskets are assembled, laced together and then filled with stone to form a monolithic structure. Gabions and Reno mattresses are used for retaining walls, sound barriers, channel linings, slope stabilization, dams and weirs. They are particularly effective in restoring the environment and promoting vegetation growth. Our mesh is also used very successfully for rockfall protection and mechanically stabilized soil walls (Terramesh ). All the physical and mechanical properties of Maccaferri gabions and Reno mattresses meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM A975.

Main Features ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLINESS–Gabions and Reno mattresses are environmentally friendly products. The blending of gabion and Reno mattress structures into the environment is rapid and pleasing. The voids in the rockfill become progressively filled with silt, promoting vegetation growth which is essential to the preservation and maintenance of the ecological balance of the surrounding environment. FLEXIBILITY–The woven mesh system has the capability of withstanding unexpected and/or localized stresses due to ground settlements and scour by deflection while maintaining its structural integrity. PERMEABILITY–The stone fill allows the water to seep through the structure while retaining the soil, therefore no additional drainage is required to relieve the hydrostatic pressures. COST EFFECTIVE, EASY TO BUILD–Gabions and Reno mattresses construction does not require skilled labor because they are very easy to build. Standard construction equipment can be used. Structures can be built in stages, if necessary, and baskets can be prefilled and launched to enable the installation under water. Site assistance is available from any Maccaferri area office. Due to their pr oven success, Maccaferri pr oducts proven products e appr oved by many Federal, State and local are approved ar Authorities.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION SHEET

Terramesh® System

TERRAMESH® SYSTEM

Fig. 1 1-1.5 ft

The Terramesh® System is an environmentally friendly modular system used for soil reinforcement applications such as mechanically stabilized earth walls and slopes (Fig. 1,3,4). Units are placed at horizontal layers during the filling and compaction of the structural embankment. The vertical spacing between reinforcements is determined by the design in order to provide the required shear strength for the soil embankment. Standard sizes of Terramesh® System are reported in Table 1. A Terramesh® System unit is made of a continuous double twisted wire mesh panel that forms the reinforcement, and the front and top of a gabion style facing section (Fig. 2). The back panel, ends, and diaphragm of the facing section are connected to the main unit during the manufacturing process. The facing section is a rectangular form filled with stone which provides strength and drainage to the structure. To promote vegetation, a vegetative pocket may be used as shown in Figure 1, Detail A.

The Terramesh® System is fabricated from a soft, tensile, heavily galvanized and PVC coated double twisted wire mesh. Terramesh® System structures have unique characteristics. They include: - Effective Hydraulics. Using stone fill permits a free draining system, which reduces potential hydraulic pressure effects. The Terramesh® System works well along stream banks and channels providing maximum protection against erosion. - Structurally sound. The wire mesh reinforcement is continuous along the reinforcement plane, the sloped facing and the top return section. This eliminates the risk of connection failures between the reinforcement and the facing section. In addition, the hexagonal pattern of the double-twisted wire mesh provides full interlocking with the soil and adds a non-ravelling effect that prevents any accidental damage from spreading. - Cost effective. Terramesh® System structures can be built with soil fill and rock available on-site, if adequate, requiring mini-

Terramesh速 System structures can be naturally integrated with the surrounding environment by use of various bio-engineering techniques. The filtering capability of the rock fill, allows the soil, water, air, and plant life to interact naturally. Plant life can be incorporated into the design to enhance vegetation growth as shown in Detail A of Figure 1 and in Figure 7. For more information about Terramesh速 System, technical specifications and installation procedures, please refer to the Product Technical Data Sheet and the Product Installation Guide. Fig. 8

Maccaferri provides a computer software and technical support to assist in the design of Terramesh速 System structures. The MACSTARS program (Fig. 9) performs internal and external stability checks of the reinforced structure and provides a detailed calculation report, cross sections, and safety factors.

Here’s how DUCKBILL® works. . .

Model 40 300 Lbs. Capacity In Normal Soils When you pull on the cable, the anchor locks into position. . .like a toggle bolt in the earth

Model 68 1,100 Lbs. Capacity In Normal Soils

Model 88 3,000 Lbs. Capacity In Normal Soils

As you pull harder, the anchor will compact the soil, increasing strength!

1. Drive DUCKBILL to desired depth DUCKBILL anchors are driven into the soil using a hammer and drive steel (a small jack hammer can also be used together with power drive steel). As the anchor is being driven, it is actually compacting the soil around the anchor head. Once the anchor is at the proper depth, the drive steel is removed.

Model 138 5,000 Lbs. Capacity In Normal Soils

The DUCKBILL® principle Saving time and labor, patented DUCKBILL anchors work like toggle bolts in soil. DUCKBILLS are driven into the ground (with no holes, no digging and no concrete), providing a safe and environmentally sensitive installation. An upward pull on the anchor tendon rotates the DUCKBILL into a perpendicular “load lock” position in undisturbed soil. The result? SUPERB HOLDING CAPACITIES! DUCKBILL anchor systems offer the most

2. Set the DUCKBILL in soil To set the anchor in normal soil, wrap the wire rope around the drive steel or insert rod through loop in wire rope and pull upward a distance approx. the length of the anchor body. Or, use the DUCKBILL Anchor Hook accessory. The upward pull on the wire rope rotates the anchor into a perpendicular load lock position in undisturbed soil.

DUCKBILL® MULTI PURPOSE & THEFT DETERRENT EARTH ANCHOR SYSTEMS Secure Any Object To Deter Theft And Prevent Unwanted Movement DUCKBILL® Earth Anchors are used worldwide to secure items that can be stolen, moved or blown down. Sizes are available for any application. One-man installation capabilities without the need for digging, expensive equipment or special skills saves time and labor. And DUCKBILLS are safer than conventional anchors because they leave no rigid rods or stakes above ground to cause injury. DUCKBILLS are designed with a length of galvanized wire rope or galvanized wire rope combined with proof coil chain long enough to allow enough movement for mowing or maintenance. DUCKBILLS are intended for light duty applications in normal soils and periodic condition inspections are recommended.

Rapid Roller RECP Installation Implement ®

Product Information

EROSION CONTROL Products • Guaranteed SOLUTIONS

Reduce RECP installation costs

by as much as 40% or MORE!

North American Green’s Rapid Roller is an innovative new tool designed to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Designed for use with a skidsteer loader, the Rapid Roller is a hydraulically-controlled boom that swings from side to side and pivots up and down for quick and easy unloading and unrolling of North American Green RECPs (Rolled Erosion Control Product) during installation. Available for use with 4 feet, 6.67 feet and 8 feet RECPs on 3-to-4 inch cores, the Rapid Roller requires only a 2-man team for operation: one to drive the loader, the other to ensure proper seam formation and staple the blanket to the ground. For use with the Rapid Roller, North American Green offers our Single and Double Net straw blankets (S75®/DS75™/S150®/DS150™) in standard roll sizes of 6.67 feet x 500 feet. Other blanket types and 4 feet and 8 feet wide rolls in extended lengths are also available on special order. Experience has shown that the Rapid Roller and a 5-man crew can install 2,500 square yards of material per hour, versus 1,000 square yards per hour by a 6-man crew without the advantage of the Rapid Roller. Such productivity can reduce installation costs by 40% or more. Call your North American Green distributor today and see how you can take advantage of this innovative and cost-saving tool.

The Rapid Roller makes loading and unloading large rolls of North American Green product from flatbed trucks easier and faster.


The Rapid Roller connects quickly and easily to any skidsteer loader. The Hydraulic Actuator allows the Stem to swing 180 degrees left or right, as well as angle 115 degrees up and 8 degrees down. The detachable Stem can be changed easily and is available in three different lengths. Rapid Roller’s Pivot Arm locks securely for ease of transportation and storage. The adjustable stop on Rapid Roller’s Pivot Arm allows for operation at below horizontal levels. Keeping the material perfectly positioned on the Stem is simple with Rapid Roller’s Roll Retaining Collar and Quick Pin.

APPLICATIONS INCLUDE:

Highways – Medians, shoulders, channel bottoms and side slopes Golf Courses – Fairways and roughs Residential, commercial and industrial developments

Functional Description Captures foliage, litter, sediment, phosphates, hydrocarbonsâ&#x20AC;Ś

Everything!

Turbulence deflectors prevent captured sediment from re-suspending. Hydrocarbons collect in front of skimmer and are absorbed by Storm Boom.

Hatch

Separating organic matter from the static water prevents bacterial buildup.

Hatch

Nutrient rich vegetation and litter are captured in filtration screen system. Sediment settles to the bottom. Boom

Deflector Sediment

Sediment

Skimmer Sediment

Bottom of concrete structure is only 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122; below the pipe.

Patented

Hatch

Nutrient pollutant load is not lost to static water and flushed out at the next storm event.

Hatch

Hatch

Hatch

Vegetation and litter is above the static water and dries out between storm events. With the organic pollutant load separated from the water, the system does not go septic.

Deflector Sediment

Boom Skimmer Sediment

During servicing, the screen system hinges off to the side to give easy access to the sediment collected in the lower chambers.


Captured Debris To the right is a photo of the back page of a road atlas being held 10â&#x20AC;? underwater in a Nutrient Separating Baffle Box. After a couple of months with no rain, the water still has no smell and is clear. The sediment can be clearly seen on the bottom, and small fish and critters have established a happy and healthy ecosystem within the structure. If you are reluctant to touch the water in your stormwater filtration system because it is septic, then you have a problem because the next storm event will flush out your system into the environment. To the left is a view of 5790 pounds of sediment collected in a Nutrient Separating Baffle Box just 30 days after installation.

To the right is a view of foliage and litter collected within the screen system of a Nutrient Separating Baffle Box.


Sizing The Nutrient Separating Baffle Box Because the entire flow is always treated and head loss is so minimal, determining the appropriate size of Nutrient Separating Baffle Box for a project is more often an element of pipe size than flow rate. Model #

*Height can vary as needed

Because water flow is not ducted off line for treatment, head loss is minimal and comparable to a large square catchbasin. Because of this, existing stormwater systems can be retrofitted with a Nutrient Separating Baffle Box, without compromising the original design specifications of the existing stormwater system. All structures are load rated for at least H-20. Standard wall construction of the structure is 6” thick steel re-enforced concrete. Concrete wall thickness can be more heavily reinforced and thicker upon request. A wide variety of manhole lids and hatches, and dampers to block off water flow during servicing, can be incorporated into the structure. Screen systems have stainless steel screens bolted into a heavy duty aluminum framework. The screen systems are hinged to give easy access to the lower chambers, and have a wide range of adjustments to accommodate unforeseen variables during installation.


Pre-assembly Of The Nutrient Separating Baffle Box

Turbulence deflectors are attached to the tops of the baffles with stainless steel bolts. Several bolts per deflector are required.

Four brackets, held in place with 4 stainless steel bolts each, secure the screen system to the baffles. The screen system includes a wide range of positional adjustment.


Setting The Structure

Step 1: Set lower half

The hole was dug starting at 10:00am. By 3:00pm the same day, the entire structure was set in place with most of the backfilling done. Step 3: Put sealant on joint

Because installation is so fast, the risk of washouts when retrofitting existing stormwater systems is dramatically reduced.

Step 2: Hook up pipes

Step 4: Set upper half

Ready to position inflow pipe and seal pipes with grout

Notice the custom pipe fitting on the inflow end. It is designed to accommodate two 18â&#x20AC;? RCP side by side. To block off the water flow of submerged or partially submerged pipes during servicing, internal damper systems are available.

A Suntree representative is always available to oversee installation to ensure a successful project.
